Re: Where in debian system set up pam auth. for heimdal kerberos

Um... to be pedantic, I wouldn't say that "PAM is used by heimdal-kerberos". I'd rather say that various authentication-requiring servers use PAM as a standard authentication interface, and PAM can use Kerberos as an authentication method if it's configured to do that.

The PAM configuration files for each service that uses PAM are always located in /etc/pam.d directory.

According to packages.debian.org package database, the libpam-heimdal package does not install a configuration file example into /etc/pam.d, so any examples are probably located in the documentation files in /usr/share/doc/libpam-heimdal.
